What a treat, the eggs were perfect. Turkey sausage really hit the spot! The eggs cooked to perfection in the toast was thick and tasty

We were looking for a quick and easy breakfast restaurant. Well we found it. They were quick and efficient from the get go. Quick to get seated. They had an extensive list of drinks to choose from. We had coffee, a smoothie and fresh squeezed OJ- yum to all. To eat: avocado toast with a poached egg and the Boers... More

My friends and I were visiting Tampa for the weekend and stumbled upon this spot perfectly located steps away from the Riverwalk. From the first glance at the menu we knew we made a good decision to have breakfast here. We ordered the lemon ricotta pancakes, the huevos rancheros tostadas and freshly squeezed fruit drinks. The service was prompt and... More

I'd be here everyday. The farmhouse stayed hash was fantastic and chickichanga was to die for. Add in great coffee, amazing bread, homemade preserves, and a friendly staff - how could you want anything else.

I visited First Watch when looking for breakfast during the College Football National Championship weekend. My impression was a good breakfast place which seemed to do a good bit of business on the Saturday I visited. The food was solid with some interesting twists. While nothing overly special, it is a better breakfast than most hotel options. Much better than... More

We were in town for the CFP national championship. We found this restaurant on tripdavisor and it did not disappoint. We went for lunch about 11:45. It was a Sunday and everyone was eating brunch food so we too opted to join in. It was delicious. I had an omelet with toast, jam and a side of greens. It was... More

This was my First Watch inauguration and I was quite impressed. The dishes offered weren't overwhelming in number and it seemed like a lot of thought was put into each dish's creation, with a theme of fresh healthy offerings that didn't sacrifice taste.

The menu is great: a good number of choices but not overwhelmingly so, to allow expertise over the options rather than mediocre execution. Avocado appears in several menu items, and there really are multiple options for everyone (different meats, vegetarian, etc.). Their multigrain bread is at least a half inch thick, and offers a great amount of bite and chew... More

Great range of brunch options and not all beige options like most brunchs. I am also not a green juice type of fan but they had a great kale drink. Good value.
